My Students

My students are fourth-graders that live on the proverbial and literal wrong side of the tracks. They live in an area of the Coachella Valley that has never had a positive reputation due to high crime and poverty levels. They are amazing!

I have some of the most stubborn, hard-headed, genuine, hilarious, and experimental thinkers in my classroom.

They are curious learners that lead lessons in the classroom by holding collaborative discussions with their peers throughout the day. Their enthusiasm for learning is something that keeps me going on a daily basis. My students are empathetic, goal-driven, and remind me every day why I chose this profession.

My Project

These materials are going to be used as incentives for students that are focused and motivated in the classroom. They will have an opportunity to earn time at the end of each day to explore and play with the different board games, stem, and engineering materials.

I want them to earn their reinforcer at the end of the day for staying on task, but also secretly get their neurons going with these brain stimulating incentives.

They will try to figure out how to build a stable structure for marbles to make their way through. They will engineer a creation of their choice with lots of bolts and metal pieces to choose from. They will need to make decisions using strategy and planning to become the victor of a game. All of these teachings are what teachers want to instill in the classroom and can be taught not only using district curriculum, but games.
